Dragon Age 2 Beta Patch 1.01 (PC)

A beta patch for Dragon Age 2 has recently been released for PC users. It updates your game to v1.01, resolving some general issues that some players may have experienced:

  • Fixed save game issues on single core machines
  • Fixed game asking for non-existent drives
  • Fixed release control issues where some players were unable to unlock correctly
  • Fixed a Steam-specific issue related to VO not playing after switching languages (however, Steam doesn't allow the installation of beta patches)

Dragon Age 2 Hi-Res Texture Pack

As mentioned in the Developer Chat on March 5th, Dragon Age 2 will support DirectX11 with high resolution textures. These textures were released just yesterday as an optional download (1.08 GB) at the Bioware site. Using high-resolution textures requires a graphics card with at least 1024MB video memory, and most of the benefits from the Hi-Res textures will only be seen if you are able to run the game in DirectX 11.
